Whether you've got long-term dreams of homeownership or not, Renting With The Right To Buy is a program worth considering. Once approved, you get to pick out your own house that's currently on the market for sale, and this investment company will buy the property for you and lease it back to you at pre-arranged terms. You only sign one-year leases for as many as 5 years, so you are welcome to leave after a minimum of 1 year without any financial penalty. If you decide to exercise your Right To Buy, you may do so at any point during the 5 years of renting. I love this idea because the investment company will even update the house to your specifications prior to you moving in!

LA GRANGE, IL - With expansion of Chicago metropolitan area many real estate developers were buying land along the newly built Burlington & Quincy railroad through western Cook County and one of them was Franklin Dwight Cossitt, who had successful wholesale grocery business.

He wanted to build ideal suburban village and started planting trees, laying out streets and building quality homes.

I had received an inquiry from first-time home buyers looking in Chicago and possibly some suburbs close to Chicago.  They were interested more in the north side of Chicago so I referred them to one of my referral agents in the city.  They weren't too happy with the areas they were being shown in their price range. They decided to look with me in the suburbs.  We looked at La Grange real estate, Forest Park, North Riverside and Oak Park.  They chose a great house in La Grange. Their criteria was a city close enough to Chicago with a good crime rate and it's own "downtown area."  They weren't really knowledgeable about the village but I told them about the downtown strip filled with shopping, dining and entertainment.  In fact, I took them out to lunch and when they saw the area south of...
